lets.classvar: Frequency distribution of a variable within a species' range

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References Examples

View source: R/lets_classvar.R

Description

Based on a species Presence-Absence matrix including variables of interest (see lets.addvar), the function divides a continuous variable into classes and counts the frequency of each class within each species' range.

Usage

1
lets.classvar(x, groups = "default", pos, xy)

Arguments

x

Presence-absence matrix with a single variable added (see lets.addvar).

groups

The number of classes into which the variable will be divided. Default calculates the number of classes as the default for a histogram (hist).

pos

Column number containing the variable of interest.

xy

Logical, if TRUE the input matrix contains the geographic coordinates in the first two columns.

Value

A matrix with species in the rows and the variable's classes in the columns.
